Georgia Tech Football: Over/Under 8.5 Wins?

New, 74 comments

It's summer, and content has become scarce. What better to turn to in this time of need than gambling?

5Dimes recently released its odds on regular season win totals this fall. Georgia Tech's odds have been set at -200 (that's 3-to-2 for those of us who aren't big gamblers) for an over/under line of 8.5 regular season wins. As easy as some lines can be to bet against, this is actually really close, because I get the feeling that a lot of us expect Tech to finish in the 8-9 wins region. Personally, I look at the schedule and see 6 solid wins (Elon, Duke, UNC, Syracuse, Pitt, and Alabama A&M), and I expect us to scratch out 2-3 past that. Then I consider that we have a new defensive coordinator and we have no idea how that will go, before considering that the guy he's replacing was a downright train wreck...

I'll take the over on this one. I think Georgia Tech finishes with at least 9 wins after the georgia game.

If forced to bet against the Georgia Tech line, which way would you go?
